On Monday,coach Matt Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace left open the possibility the Bears could sign running back Kareem Hunt, who was released by the Chiefs on Nov. 30 after video showed him pushing and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel last year, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
While nothing is pending — “We’re not even close to that point,” Pace said — neither the coach nor the GM ruled out a signing when asked a total of six questions about Hunt.
Nagy said he spoke with Hunt, who played for him last year with the Chiefs, last week on the phone.
“We had a good conversation,” Nagy said. “Here’s a kid that I spent a year coaching on offense. It’s a tough situation. I wanted to make sure that he’s OK but understanding, too, that the situation that happened is unfortunate for everybody. He knows that.”
“So the only thing I cared about when I talked to him was literally his personal life, and it was a good conversation. He sounded good. That’s it.”
